It’s easy to be hard on yourself especially when things aren’t going right. The world got enough bad shit in it already. Why contribute more shit against yourself? It’s normal to go through the motions. Cry. Complain. Not saying you can’t do those things but at some point it gotta come to an end so you can prosper.
Here are 7 things to think about so you can stop kicking your own ass.
WHAT THE FUCK IS BOTHERING YOU?
Are you jealous about something? It’s okay it’s normal. Does someone keep getting to you? It’s okay it’s normal. What or who is fucking up your energy? These are the first steps you have to take to get your peace back. If I’m in a war it’s going to be difficult for me to win if I don’t know who the target/enemy is. Who or what is the source of your pain? It’s time to begin your cleanse.
IS IT A PRIORITY IN THE GRAND SCHEME?
Is whatever altering your emotions is it a priority in the bigger picture? Is it something that could be removed and make you say “Damn I was tripping off that?” What are your priorities period? What are they for the day, week, month, year. Do you have the right priorities for your life? Health. Love. Happiness. Laughter. Spirituality. Stop making short term people and things long term priorities.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU FELT LIKE THAT NIGGA OR THAT BITCH?
Go back to the last time you felt and believed that shit. Go back to when you felt it in your bones. Nobody could tell you shit but the universe and the most high. Not when somebody made you feel that way, fuck all that shit. I’m talking bout you and you only with no assistance or nobody gassing you up. When was the last time you felt like that nigga or that bitch? That is such an important moment. You need to live in that moment and continue birth moments like that in your future.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
We’re in this weird ass climate where people run to the things that make them upset instead of running to the things that inspires them. People choose being upset instead of choosing things that would bring them joy. What inspires you? It’s time to go down the path of inspiration and start building a foundation of prosperity for yourself. If it doesn’t inspire you then it doesn’t require your presence in any form. The days of concerning yourself with things or people who don’t concern you are over.
WHO’S IN YOUR CIRCLE?
It’s time to hang out with your circle a bit more. You need that energy from the people you trust. The people you can talk about anything with. The people who will tell you the truth. The people in your circle help shape the person you are. Whenever I beat myself up about things it was my inner circle that helped me from doing more unnecessary damage.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF?
Name everything you love about yourself and let’s increase the things day by day. The things you are self conscious about may end up being the biggest blessings. When was the last time you made a list of the things you love about yourself?
My word for the year and every year after is GRATITUDE! I’ve really become obsessed with gratitude. There’s too much focus of what you don’t have and not enough of what you have at the moment. Gratitude is the path less traveled but is the best path to happiness. Crazy right? Let gratitude drive you to the life you desire.
